Pine Hill Stone Crusher and Early Stone Crushing Practices
The Pine Hill Stone Crusher and its uses from 1887-1932 are explored and described fully by Paul J. Crossman Jr. of Rutland, a former electrical engineer with G.E. whose many interests include local history.
In this narrative he explores the origins and uses of the stone crusher; the sources of stone; the variety of equipment essential to perform the work; and various essential details.
Mr. Crossman adds additional interest to the story with interviews; a list of previous workers at the Pine Hill facility; articles from the Rutland paper; and maps and photographs that lend further useful information concerning the Crusher that created “Good Roads”.
